Fooq's is Back and Upping the Ante in Little River

Time Out Miami
By Falyn Wood

If Little River wasn’t already on your radar, surely it will be now. Miami’s burgeoning culinary and cultural hub just minutes north of the Design District and Little Haiti welcomes its latest buzzy resident with the forthcoming reopening of Fooq’s.

The Downtown Mediterranean nook from David Foulquier’s We All Gotta Eat Hospitality was beloved for its flavorful home-style cuisine like charcoal-grilled kebabs and Persian stews. It made for an excellent stop for an elevated but casual meal before walking over to a show at the nearby Adrienne Arsht Center.

The two-level space with an outdoor lounge will incorporate design elements from Fooq’s heritage, a contemporary cross-section of traditional Middle Eastern and Moroccan influences.

The menu will feature many of Fooq’s original dishes, plus new items that reflect Foulquier’s travels over the last few years, with an emphasis on tradition and seasonality. The new bar will have a full liquor license with a craft cocktail program that expands on its already impressive wine selection.

Fooq’s will serve lunch, brunch and dinner seven days a week, with the second level and outdoor lounge offering entertainment on select nights.
